STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Don't Lose Your Edge

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Don't Lose Your Edge

We’re in February, but it might as well be that the snow and windchill don’t care. Although your winter might not be as extreme as the current state of the Northwest, there seems to be a trend sweeping campuses – losing your edge. Dressing up for class is already a struggle when you’ve stayed up finishing your work. When you add the -15 temperatures to the mix, our bodies just need to stay warm. This Fashionista shows us the way to style and edge which is sometimes missing from winter fashion.

This trend is all about the small details in the layering. We’ve all heard layering is important for keeping warm during the winter months. Follow the rules, just this once, and layer pieces like a leopard faux fur vest with a leather coat. It’s the pieces, not the layering, that makes your look even more special. Trade in the your knit gloves for some leather gloves with hardware. This Fashionista’s gloves stand out from the crowd of knit and classic leather gloves with the spike detailing.

Finally, make your look stand out from the sea of down coats and heavy snow boots by simply finding accessories that do the job. This Fashionista’s Timberland boots have great traction and are a sleeker alternative to the heavier snow boots this season. Keep your neck warm with this knit blanket scarf favored by today’s trends. Don’t forget a pair of rad sunglasses to block out the sun.
